sorry, got distracted for a few minutes.
I took detached external house entering what appears to be pump housing. I disconnected black Y shaped hose from other side of housing as well as a connection to the drum. I found the coin blocking the house from drum. There is a plastic catch in the black Y shaped hose. Once I did this the drum drained, but now it won't spin. Tries to spin 4 or 5 times in different directions then beeps. I did lay washer on front to get at the hoses.
ok, took it all apart again. and removed the large section of Y rubber hose. I was then able to remove the plastic catch. 4 coins, a few pcs of plastic. I removed, reinstall everything and it rotated left 3 times, right 3 times, but this time it did it about twice as many times, still not continuous rotation.
The other leg of Y that is going to about a 1" plastic pipe, is that the pressure valve?
Don't mind upping the $$$ but we are still struggling. I found the 1/8 inch hose off bottom of pressure switch. I also traced it back to one leg of the Y valve that had previously had the plastic filter with coins. It seems all is clear. What's next?
Spins 3 rotations one way, 3 rotations another, repeated about 4 times in each direction.
I thought you were out for the night so I did some more searching. many (4 others) are reporting the issue to be resovled with the "door lock switch/mechanism"?. error message shows as needs to replace control board but on Frigidaire units like mine that isn't fixing the issue.
Some cut and pastes: What do you think? Do you have part number?
"my washer had same problems, turned out to be door lock switch. around $75.00."
"door lock mechanism"
yes the door switch could be the issue , I thought we went over that but I guess we got side tracked by the coins and usually when the drain is clogged its what was causing the problem, this site has the switch for $58.00 , http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3886713&rdr=%2fpartsearch%2fmodel.aspx%3fmodel_id%3d5157229%26diagram_id%3d1261089 I'll do some more checking and might be able to find it cheaper, I'll get back to you, thanks Bryan
Just got back to it this morning. I am not sure reading other posts if I should replace door lock mechanism or door lock switch. Most seemed to replace control planel which did not fix and then replaced either mechanism or switch. Apparently there are two indicators one to let the washer run and a second safety to let it go to high speed spin. Does that make sense. Let me know if you think I need door switch or door mechanism. All other functions work fine
